Nicholas Chak urge relevant authorities to take immediate action to deal with the damaged facilities at children playground in Likas stadium and the jogging park. He noticed that the children playground facilities in the park were damaged severely.

This can be very dangerous especially the playground, authorities should not allow children to play there for the time being for safety reasons.
Beside this issue, according to citizens, sometimes there are stray dogs around the park and chasing people who jog in the park, this have created fear to the public that the stray dogs might hurt them and children could get bitten.
